Raising a child with autism is challenging, to say the least. CABS encourages our families to reach out to one another and seek support within community groups. We also provide support to both clients and the community through various trainings and events.
Led by one of our BCBAs or our Program Director, Coffee Talks provide families at CABS and within the community an opportunity to gather, learn a little bit about a new topic from CABS, ask questions, and network with other families in their community. Coffee talks are held at our Itasca and Savannah locations. Coffee Talks are free but RSVP is required.
Next Coffee Talk Dates:
Savannah Friday 4/6 at 9am
Itasca Monday 4/16 at 9am
Mommy/Daddy and Me
Mommy/Daddy and Me groups are designed to provide support to parents who wish to further their play skills with their child. Groups are kept small, 3-5 parents and children, and incorporate music, sensory, and movement. Children learn communication, referencing, and regulation skills. This group is limited to children ages 2-5, and sessions are 45 minutes in duration. Mommy/Daddy and Me groups are billed through insurance but private pay options are available at $30 per session.
Group Parent Trainings
Parent Group Trainings are a way for parents to learn more about a given topic related to their child in a more intensive format. Trainings are conducted by our Clinical Director or Program Director, and cover a variety of topics from increasing more spontaneous language, treating challenging behaviors, and more in-depth understanding of ABA principles. Group Parent trainings are 1-3 hours and billed through insurance. Private pay options are available as well at $30 per training.
